Early concept designs have been unveiled for the new $619 million Paediatric Services Building at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, which is set to transform healthcare for sick and injured children across NSW.
The Paediatric Services Building is part of the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network and is being delivered in partnership with Heath Infrastructure as part of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead Stage 2 project.
The new building will house a brand new neonatal intensive care unit, paediatric intensive care unit, operating theatres, cancer services, pharmacy and additional inpatient units. The project will also deliver a new multi-storey car park to serve the existing and expanded Children’s Hospital.
The next stage of the process is schematic design, which will involve development of internal layouts for all of the services within the new building as well as further development of the building form, façade and landscaping.
Construction of the Central Acute Services Building is complete which includes the first stage for Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network’s Westmead site, providing a new children’s emergency department (including satellite medical imaging and pharmacy) and children’s short stay unit.
In addition to the $619 million investment in paediatric services at Westmead, the NSW and Australian governments, Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation, Children’s Cancer Institute and UNSW Sydney announced $608 million for the delivery of a new integrated paediatric building for the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network at Randwick.
